First 10 Weeks Coaching
"FIRST 10 WEEKS"
ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Welcome to Okeeheelee BMX. By joining USA BMX, you have taken the first step in becoming a part of the BMX family here at Okeeheelee, and around the world. You have brought your first bike to the best facility around. Okeeheelee BMX has been ranked as a Top Ten Track in the Country by USA BMX. In 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 we have been recognized as the #1 BMX track in Florida and the #1 track on the East coast (2013 & 2015 & 2018)
Okeeheelee is world renowned for its amazing track surface, upkeep, attention to detail, rider support, and their unmatched ability to put the riders and families first. Keeping with our tradition of striving to offer the best, Okeeheelee BMX, in conjunction with USABMX, was integral in the development and design of the new rider program, referred to as the “First Ten Weeks” (F10W). The title of the program refers to the first ten sessions of information taught. We were the first track in the country to offer this program in 2013 now our program has become the nation standard for BMX Coaching.
Now is the time to get ahead of the rest at your new home, Okeeheelee BMX. This program will build confidence in your rider, as well as the parent, through skill building of the basic fundamentals and understanding of BMX on and off the track. The last thing we want is for your riders to become overwhelmed and feel unconfident in their ability. The first two sessions, titled “Introduction to BMX I and II”, will be offered FREE to all new USA BMX members. The remaining 8 sessions will be sold in blocks of 4 sessions at $80 per block which can be purchased when you register for the class.
First Ten Weeks program is held on every MONDAY that Palm Beach County Schools are in SESSION. Please check our Facebook page for updated information on which skills will be offered and sign up for RAINED OUT alerts in case inclement weather forces us to close the track
